2024-02-21T19:22:04.735Z

Highlights: Since yesterday, France has had a new supreme value, just like security or defense: agriculture. Gabriel Attal, who has devoted almost all his time to it since his arrival in Matignon, no longer has enough words to convince the farmers of his unfailing support. Emmanuel Macron also gives of himself to the unions. In a few days, a vast catalog of emergency measures emerged, pending a new law “for sovereign agriculture”, in order to meet the demands of the rebels. Lighter regulations, easier employment of foreign labor, aid to breeders, modified pesticide measurement indicator.
